Does anyone ever notice....

Posted , 5 users are following.

Ok, so I started my period 8 days early (who can tell anymore, right?) and not only am I dealing with that time of the month stuff...cramping, fatigue, this and that but for some reason my allergies are just going nuts!!! I know they say that menopause magnifies things but this is just over the edge!!! Anyone else experience existing conditions that seemed magnified now?

    lyn............yes i have a malfunctioning nervous system, its called dysautonimia and boy has it been bad since menopause, so much so i thought it was that, that had gone wrong, and that i wasnt on the menopause, as symptoms are identical.

    Mines are too. I used to deal with allergies when I was younger and they started to get better, but after these crazy symtpoms started, I seem to have a stuffy nose every other day.

      Yes ive had a stuffy nose since i was 21, i use a steriod based nasal spray doesnt work as work as quick as a cold type one, ive got too much histamine, that makes you ache and feel like you have the flu as well...............cripes what next.

    Yes I thought I had the flu yesterday. I was achy and stiff all over, sore throat, stuffy left nostril, headache. Today I just have the mild stuffy nose but I think it is allergies as well.

      remember as well,  our inner temps increase, this causes inflammationn in in the nasal passages which causes them to swell making our noses stuffy, but also affects our histamine levels, i just use a spray, but also find for the other symptoms decongestions worked well which are anti histamines, you feel like you have hayfever, but you can get it all year round not just in the summer, its down to hormone fluctuations, mines my right nostril..............ha and if you stand by a radiator it blocks more, and your temp increases inside as well, so much it can trigger a hot flush.

      Gosh! You've described exactly what I've been going through. I live in NYC and these apartments are notorious for cranking up the heat and my sinuses immediately react to that heat. A few times the increased best has triggered a hot flash or two. Thank you for mentioning this. It makes so much sense!
